Varnish is a website accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, because it can increase the load speed of any site, sometimes even by 100 percent, based on the content. This tool is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to lower the overall load on the server and to accelerate the access speed for the site visitors. Whenever a visitor loads a page on a specific Internet site, the web browser request is processed by the web server and the requested information is served as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the web pages that the website visitor browses and if any of them is opened once again, it is delivered by Varnish and not by the server directly. The performance boost comes from the fact that the accelerator handles the web requests substantially quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the website visitors. In case any data is edited in the meantime, the cached pages will also be updated the next time someone tries to access them.

Varnish in Website Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each of our website hosting plans. You can add it to your hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting plans and you will get a really simple-to-use graphical interface, which will grant you complete control over the content caching system. Using one-click fast-access controls, you can restart or stop any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer work for a certain site. You can also see an in-depth log or delete the cache for any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting package, you will be able to choose the maximum amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for maximum performance, you can get a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your websites and to have numerous satisfied site visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is a feature, which comes as standard with all semi-dedicated plans offered by us and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The content caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any site that you host in your semi-dedicated account. If you are in need of more than that, you can increase the system memory quota. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The very same Upgrades section will enable you to create more instances too, if you’d like to use Varnish with multiple Internet sites. The two things can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of one popular website or run several websites with the default memory. You can get the most out of the Varnish platform in case you have a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. Hepsia will grant you full control over the caching platform and, with no more than one mouse click, you will be able to delete the cached contents, to view a system log or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can employ Varnish in order to accelerate any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server from us when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready for use at no additional charge, but you will also exert total control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate interface. It will take only one click of the mouse to start or disable an instance or to delete the cached data for any website that’s using the Varnish platform and in case you are more experienced, you can also view the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with no less than three gigabytes of system memory for web content caching purposes, so even if you host numerous websites on your dedicated server and they all use the caching platform, the difference in their performance will be evident. You will simply need to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever pages the visitors access on their end. The Varnish platform performs best when the websites use a dedicated IP address, but since our dedicated servers include 3 free-of-cost IP addresses, you’ll have everything you need.
